What is a lower body lift?

A lower body lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that can remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks. These areas are then tightened and contoured resulting in a leaner, aesthetically pleasing torso.

A lower body lift, which can also be described as a tummy tuck, butt, and thigh lift, is often performed after dramatic weight loss. Substantial weight loss can cause the skin to become saggy and loose. Handling this aspect of weight loss has helped to greatly increase our patients’ self-confidence and many report it has changed their lives for the better.

What can I benefit from a lower body lift in Tijuana?

There are many benefits to having a lower body lift, especially for those who have lost a significant amount of weight. With a lower body lift you can reap the following benefits:

  • Excess skin and fat can be removed from the buttocks, thighs, and abdomen
  • The body is sculpted into a more aesthetically pleasing shape
  • A lower body lift can also help to improve circulation 
  • A lower body lift can address issues such as rashes and cellulite

As a result, patients who undergo this procedure often report a surge in confidence. If you are considering a lower body lift, consult with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons and find out if you are a good candidate for the procedure.

What should I expect after a lower body lift?

Our board-certified plastic surgeons will be monitoring you closely after your lower body lift to ensure that you are healing and recovering properly. After your surgery, you will stay overnight in the hospital for observation.

You can expect to feel some amount of discomfort after your lower body lift, as it is an extensive surgical procedure, however, you will be given pain medication and aftercare instructions to help manage this.

What is the recovery for a lower body lift?

Most patients require 1-2 weeks of downtime before they can resume light activities. During this time, it is important to keep your incisions clean and dry. You will also need to wear compression garments to help minimize any swelling. A full recovery process can take 4-6 weeks; however, the results of a lower body lift can be extremely satisfying, both physically and emotionally.
